Hi Yes we had a balcony. Some people say its not worth the money but we loved it. We left our door open to the ocean every night. We had romantic glasses of wine there too as well as our morning cups of coffee. One night we turned off the cabin lights and star gazed.
We did have a couple of rough days at sea. We didn't get to go to Grand Cayman because the port auth. thought the seas were too rough. I wore my sea wrist bands for motion sickness and they worked very well.
We photo copied our passports before we left so we always had the info with us. We had a great time.
